Geometry  Polygons 
In geometry a polygon is
traditionally a plane figure that is bounded by a closed path or circuit, composed of a finite sequence of
straight line segments (i.e., by a closed polygonal chain). These segments are called its edges or sides, and the
points where two edges meet are the polygon's vertices or corners. The interior of the polygon is sometimes called
its body. A polygon is a 2dimensional example of the more general polytope in any number of dimensions.
The word "polygon" derives from the Greek πολύς ("many") and γωνία (gōnia), meaning "knee" or "angle". Today
a polygon is more usually understood in terms of sides.  Wikipedia
K = area r= radius of inscribed circle R = radius of circumscribed circle p and q are
diagonals n= number of sides θ = one of the vertex angles

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dialup modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
